ARE YOU A GOOD CANDIDATE?
Pre-existing skin conditions and skin treatments can heavily compromise the effectiveness of microblading and/or powder shading. So before you book your appointment, read the following information below to find out if microblading is right for you. If you are unsure whether you are a good candidate, we are happy to provide a free consultation.
SKIN CONDITIONS (FACE ONLY)
Skin Complications: If you have skin which is prone to complications including eczema, psoriasis, and dematitis (i.e. your skin is constantly flaking, itching, or aggravated), your skin is not suitable for microblading and/or powder shading beacause your skin will not hold the pigment well.
Chronic Conditions: If you have conditions like acne or rosacea, the inherent nature of your type of skin may cause excessive bleeding, which means that your skin will not retain pigment well.
Oily Skin: Excessively oily skin can cause the microbladed hair strokes to blur together. A suitable alternative would be powder shading.
Sunburn: If you have received a dark tan or a sunburn, you must wait until your skin has resumed its natural color. *Please be mindful of our appointment/deposit policies regarding sunburns.
Previous Semi-Permanent Makeup: If you have previously had permanent makeup done at another studio that you want to change or have touched up, please email us photos of the area prior to setting up a consultation. Unfortunately, reworking the area is not always an option, so please do not leave a deposit or schedule an appointment until you hear back from us.
Accutane: Individuals must be off of Accutane for at least one year prior to the procedure.
Eyebrow Growth Serum or Eyebrow Transplants: You must stop 6 months prior to the procedure.
Latisse (eyeliner only): Latisse can cause excessive bleeding that can lead to a poor result. You must stop use 3-6 months prior to the procedure.
Cancer or Autoimmune Disease: You must be 6 months to 1 year off chemotherapy to insure proper healing. Please discuss your desire to have permanent makeup with your doctor to ensure your safety.
If you are pregnant, nursing, have hemophilia, heart condition or complications with diabetes, you are not a good candidate for microblading or permanent makeup.
